Read some of the comments in the last couple of pages in the thread I posted and it seems that the views are different. The thread clearly says cancelled but some members say that in fact it is an error. Maybe you should ask in the thread, they will have more info.

£80M plans unveiled to create world's leading Design Museum in London

Quote:
The Design Museum has unveiled plans to create the world’s leading museum of design and architecture at the former Commonwealth Institute building in Kensington, London. Designs for the site have been produced by two of the world’s most innovative architectural practices: John Pawson has redesigned the interior of the Grade 2* listed building and OMA has planned the surrounding residential development.

The move will allow the new Design Museum to become a word class centre for design, nurturing British talent and its international influence on design of all kinds. It will bring the museum into Kensington’s cultural quarter, where it will join the V&A, Science Museum, Natural History Museum, Royal College of Art and Serpentine Gallery, creating a platform for the promotion and support of the next generation of creative talent.

this is big news!!!

UBS confirms deal to move into new UK headquarters

Quote:
The Swiss bank will move into a 700,000 sq ft office development at the Broadgate estate after completing the biggest ever pre-let agreement in the City.



The project has attracted criticism from English Heritage, although a move to scupper the project by listing Broadgate was blocked by the Government last year.The deal with British Land and Blackstone, which own Broadgate, was initially unveiled in May 2010. However, it has taken months to iron out the details. This had prompted jitters in the property industry that the deal could fall apart, particularly with the uncertain economic environment and law firm CMS Cameron McKenna pulling out of a similar deal.The lengthy negotiations are likely to mean a significant pay-day for the advisers and lawyers.British Land said the parties had needed to agree "remaining minor conditions". These are thought to relate to the future of UBS's existing offices at Broadgate.

Nine Elms office blocks to be transformed into 400 homes

Quote:
Plans to redevelop two office blocks into 400 homes have been submitted to Wandsworth Council as part of the wider Nine Elms regeneration.



The proposed mixed-use development would see the Market Towers, in South London, transformed into hundreds of homes, a hotel and a new public square with shops, restaurants and cafés.

Called ‘One Nine Elms’, the scheme is a joint venture by CIT and Green Properties, designed by architect Kohn Pederson Fox.

The site is located in the east of Nine Elms - central London’s biggest regeneration project.

The area has already begun to transform with work now underway on St George's Vauxhall Tower scheme and St James Group's Riverlight development.

Enabling works are also underway on the site of the new US Embassy which is expected to open in 2017.

Council leader Ravi Govindia said: “Nine Elms is London’s leading development hotspot. The transformation is now underway and a new residential and business district will soon take shape.

“More than 20 sites are now gearing up for redevelopment and work has begun on some of the most exciting schemes. In all, 16,000 homes will be built here alongside enough new business and cultural space to support 25,000 new jobs.

Russians Target London Luxury Home Purchases
Jan 31, 2012

Russian investors increased their share of luxury-home purchases in London’s most expensive neighborhoods more than any other group in the fourth quarter, Hamptons International said, as Vladimir Putin bids to regain the presidency in March amid growing opposition. Russians accounted for 16 percent of all transactions in the Chelsea, Kensington, Knightsbridge and Belgravia neighborhoods handled by the London-based broker, according to a report today. That was up from 5 percent in the previous three months and 1 point more the combined total for European Union countries.

“It’s a precaution against things going too far in the wrong direction,” Adam Challis, head of residential research, said by phone. “The very well-connected folk realized that there was going to be some serious political uncertainty and that they’re better off putting their money into London property.” Russian Prime Minister Putin faces the biggest challenge to his rule since coming to power 12 years ago after allegations of fraud in Dec. 4 legislative polls sparked mass protests. Putin’s voter support has fallen to 37 percent, according to an opinion poll by the independent Levada Center, indicating he will need to face one of the four opposition candidates in a second-round run-off.

British Land signs accord to build HQ for UBS



Construction of one of largest office buildings in the City of London is set to begin after an accord was finalised between UBS and British Land, the property developer. British Land announced an unconditional agreement with the Swiss banking group to develop a 700,000 sq ft building at the Broadgate estate in London’s main financial district it co-owns with Blackstone.

The building, to be the bank’s main UK base, should be ready by the fourth quarter of 2014, British Land said on Monday.
UBS is set to lease it for about 18 years at an initial rent of £54.50 per sq ft, with increases in line with inflation. While a deal for UBS to remain on the office campus was agreed in 2010, the announcement was nevertheless “another significant milestone” in the development, said Tim Roberts, head of offices for British Land.

Tottengham Court Road Station Entrance

Quote:
Crossrail today unveiled striking new designs for Tottenham Court Road Crossrail station, one of the biggest stations on the Crossrail route. The updated designs not only provide Londoners with a first glimpse of the new station but also an indication of the scale of the station's eventual size. The new Crossrail station will be integrated with the Tube station to form a combined station that will stretch from Soho to Centre Point.
